A velocity microphone is a sensor whose electric output depends on the velocity of the air particles that form a sound wave . Examples are a hot-wire microphone and a ribbon microphone (bi-directional).
Velocity-sensitive microphones also respond much more to wind noise than pressure sensitive microphones (omnis). You get heavy bass tip-up or proximity effect if the sound source is close to the microphone. Cheers ebs
